Microsoft Corporation announced this week that its Windows NT Services for UNIX add-on will become available in four to six weeks. The add-on, which will cost $150, focuses on four areas of UNIX/NT integration:
- Resource sharing. Allows NT Workstation users to use UNIX systems as
file servers. UNIX workstation users will be able to access NT Server
files as well.
- Remote administration. Users can remotely log-on to and work on NT- and
- Password synchronization. Users can use a single password for their NT
and UNIX machines. Password changes on NT will automatically be
synchronized on their UNIX systems.
- Common scripting across platforms. Users can execute UNIX commands and utilities in NT.
If you're interested in NT/UNIX integration, Microsoft has also launched a new Web site that discusses these issues
